It's been pretty foggy here in San Francisco lately and today was all blue skies and sunshine. So I busted out my Sugoi top I had purchased to wear during my first triathlon for a test run. It's quite comfy and I'm looking forward to running in it more often in the future. With the sunshine I was also able to get some heat-acclimation in for the hotter Southern CA climate. I can't believe the DL Half is almost here. Time sure flies.

Finally, a Good Long(ish) Run
Today I was initially planning to run five miles but ended up running 7.1 mi. Figured I'd take tomorrow off from running, do an easy 4 Thursday, then pray to the running gods that Sunday's race can be pulled off with smiles. I didn't feel nearly as bad doing 7 today as I thought I would. Good sign. Yes, I could have gone a couple more miles. No, I don't think 13.1 today would have been pretty. Good news is the shin is holding up well. I ran on the sandy shoulder of the bike path at the beach which was terribly boring but the best surface I have to run on. I'd much rather of had a good jaunt around Golden Gate Park, but didn't want to do any asphalt running quite yet.
